    MK 5 Astra

    Hi its been a while since I last posted on here but I thought I would pop on to let you know that I went to the Brussels Motor Show at the weekend and saw and sat in a MK5.

    The car looks a lot better in real life compared to the pictures I have seen and having 5 doors doesnt seem to make it look fugly.

    The interior looks a lot better than the current astra but the dash plastics werent that brilliant. The new centre console looks very nice and the sports button looks fun .

    The whole car seems a lot more tricked out than the mk4 and hopefully Vauxhall wont expect us to pay a lot more than the current model. Its just a shame we have to wait till 05 for the proper sporty models.

    Fat? Nah, i'm fairly skinny! Not bean pole style, but deffo not fat at all!
    I don't know just find it heaps easier to get in and out of the 3 door, although, i hate when you park in a small spot and it takes all day to get out of the car because the dam doors so big, lol

    i find it really easy having to move my 18 stone ass over the front seat of a three door car too

    its much trickier getting straight out of a 5 door.
